Peace, Allotments and New Potatoes

1   This morning I arranged all the knitting we have done so far for Wool Against Weapons, into a big Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament logo in the front garden. We still have more pieces to add so the final one will be even bigger and better!

2   I visited our neighbour and her sister at their patch at the local allotments this afternoon. There is a lovely Welcome sign and theirs must be the best Garden Shed in the business!

Knitting for Peace, Shire Horses YouTube and American Spiced Carrot Cake

1   I have a new project! I heard about Wool against Weapons yesterday and have spent much of the day knitting my first 100cm contribution to seven miles, yes, seven miles of knitting! As a supporter of peace and yarn bombing, this project immediately appealed to me so I sorted out all my pink wools (they don’t mind a bit of other colour) and started!

2   Yesterday, I made a video of the beautiful Shire horses ploughing in The Lost Gardens of Heligan and I’ve uploaded it to YouTube. It sounds a bit windy but you can see how it works and see the turfs being turned over.   Here’s the link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FBTp1OiiNME&feature=youtu.be

3  I made some delicious American Spiced Carrot Cakes, some for us and some for my good friend whom I am to visit on Tuesday.
